Col John Moore 1686 – 1749 |his parents
& 1714 Frances Lambert 1692 – 1782 |her parents

This is my working hypothesis – the way I see it as of this moment!!

Col. John Moore Portrait of Mrs. John Moore
Pastel Portrait by Henrietta Johnston, 1725

Colonel John Moore (1686-1749)
Colonel John Moore, whose portrait is signed and dated 1725, was born in St. Thomas Parish, South Carolina, the son of John Moore (c. 1659-1732) and Rebecca Axtell. John Moore, the father, was Secretary of the Province of South Carolina: but about 1695/6, with his family, he moved to Philadelphia. The son went on to New York City, where he attained distinction as an alderman; a member of the Provincial Council; and of the legislature. He was also colonel of the New York City Regiment of Foot. He was a vestryman and warden of Trinity Church and is believed to be the first person buried in the graveyard of that Church.

Mrs. John Moore (1692-1782)
Mrs. John Moore was born Frances Lambert. She was of Huguenot ancestry and came to this country as a small child to escape persecution. She had many children besides the two whose pastels were drawn by Henrietta Johnston, and she lived to a good old age.
Mrs. Samuel Schwartz, the owner of this portrait, has given the following description:Mrs. John Moore (Frances Lambert), has dark brown hair, and brown eyes. Her dress is yellow with orange highlights. The scarf, she wears over her left arm (on the right side of the picture) is a lavender taupe.

“Col. John Moore, a leading merchant in the early days of New York City.”
John Moore 11 Aug 1686 SC – 29 Oct 1749 NYC age 64
Alderman, member of Legislature, Col of Regiment, Member of Provincial Council NY
will date 4 Sept 1748, buried in his vault in Trinity Churchyard
Married 1714 Frances Lambert April 1692 NYC – 17 March 1782 NYC.
She was of Huguenot descent, brought to America in infancy in consequence of the bloody persecutions of the Protestants in France. She was ‘most accomplished in looks and manners’ as reported by John Moore, Esq.
[Records of the French Church indicate that her maternal granduncle, Gabriel Minveille, was in New York by 1691. Her father, Daniel (or Denis-a possible mistake in transcription) Lambert died in Sept of 1691. Frances was born posthumously to her father’s death, in April 1692. Curiously, Frances’s baptism is not recorded in the French Church records, but all indications are she was born in New York. The Barberie connection mentioned in John Moore’s memoirs occurs when her widowed mother, Frances Brinkman Lambert married John Barberie in 1694. Terri Bradshaw O’Neill ]

He was Alderman of the City, Member of the Colonial and King’s Council, Prov. of New York. John Moore II was Col. commanding his Majesty’s New York City Regiment of Foot. He was 1715 to 1728 Vestryman and Warden of Trinity Church, New York City.

The family seat on the Hudson was acquired by him partly by purchase from Charles Congreve, Esq., and partly by patent;
his residence known as White Hall in later years was at Moore and Front Streets, New York City.
Note: This was NOT the home built before 1661 for the Hon. Peter Stuyvesant, last of the Dutch Governors. That house called Whitehall was near the Fort and burned to the ground ca 1719.

He left a large estate in the province of New York and City of Philadelphia, Penn. On Sept 24, 1748, he willed his wife, for her life, his estate in New York, excepting the family seat on the Hudson, which he devised to his son Stephen. The Philadelphia estate he left to his son, John, but that son, died before his father. A codicil gave that part of his estate to his wife for life also.

They are both buried in the Trinity vault, upon which his name was inscribed in after years by his grandson, John Moore, Esq., genealogist of New York City.

A story about John Smyth, who was the executor to John Barberie’s (1720-1770) will and a loyalist.
He had property confiscated by the new state of New Jersey.
John Smyth went to London to file his claim with the government for restitution in 1785 after the American Revolutionary war.
Several sons of John Barberie (1720-1770), also loyalists that fought in the war, (John, my 3rd great grandfather and his brother, Oliver) , knowing that John Smyth was going to England, entrusted him with a memorial (claim for confiscated homes and property in Amboy and elsewhere) to present in London on their behalf.
John Smyth went to London and presented his claim; but before he could present the Barberie claims, he took ill and died in London on January 12, 1786.
He was buried in Mary Le Bone church yard in London.
Oliver Barberie went to London to fight on his own behalf, remained in England and joined the British Army and never returned to North America (but a grandson returned to West Virginia in 1872).
John (my 3rd great grandfather) remained in New Brunswick, Canada (where he and Oliver had been exiled to in 1783) and I am still a loyal Canadian. John R. Barberie

(ref: MOORE, APPLETON supra, Col. John Moore’s will,
HENSHAW’s ‘MOORE’, by the Rt. Rev. J. P. K. Henshaw, Bishop of Rhode Island.
New York Colonial Documents, Vol. 6.)

Note: – in 1664 King Charles II granted to his brother, the Duke of York, (afterwards James II), all the territory from the Connecticut River to the Delaware. The English demanded the surrender of New Amsterdam, now part of New York City, to which demand Governor Stuyvesant sent a defiant answer, but the municipal authorities being indisposed to aid him, on Sept. 9, 1664, a treaty was signed at his mansion, ‘on his farm or bowery.’ (the Bowery survives but the mansion was destroyed by fire ca 1719)

“another of John Moore’s memoirs gives a detailed account of the Moore Family’s activities during the Revolutionary War. In early 1776, the author John Moore & his wife, John’s father Thomas and his entire family consisting of about 5 children still living at home, being Loyalists and British government employees, were forced to flee New York City when the American patriots took possession of the city. They took refuge at the estate of Thomas’s younger brother Stephen, who had inherited West Point on the death of their father. Stephen and his family had vacated the estate a few months earlier and removed to North Carolina, but another brother, Charles, still lived in the vicinity. This account is particularly interesting as to the political divisions within the Moore Clan. While most of them remained Loyalist, Stephen took the side of the patriots, Charles apparently tried to remain neutral. John’s sister, Ann married the American General, Jedediah Huntington and a few were of undetermined political inclination. John Moore seems to have remained on good terms with all of them. It is never explained how John’s sister, Ann, in a family entirely comprised of Tories, became acquainted with & was courted by Gen. Jedediah Huntington, but it would surely be an intriguing story. The General’s first wife was Faith Trumbull of Connecticut. She was the daughter of Gov. Jonathan Trumball and sister of the celebrated artist John Trumball. At the beginning of the War, according to Huntington’s biographical sketch in “Sibley’s Harvard Graduates, Class of 1763″ Faith accompanied her husband on his march to Boston and was an observer at the Battle of Bunker Hill, which spectacle so unnerved her, she became mentally unbalanced and committed suicide shortly thereafter. Ann Moore married Gen. Huntington about a year later.” Terri Bradshaw O’Neill

e-mail from Roberta Grooms “The only proof I have of the connection between Thomas Moore and his parents Charles Moore and Eve Hall is a copy of a letter written by Thomas Moore 4th month 7th 1831. At that time he was still living in New Garden, Guilford County, and the letter was written to his son, Charles who lived in Wayne Co., Indiana. Apparently Charles had asked about his ancestors and the letter was the response. Thomas Moore did not mention a second wife of his father, Charles Moore. He said Eve Hall was the daughter of Caleb Hall and Jane Daggett, which would seem to mean that Eve wasn‚Äôt a widow if Hall was her maiden name. The following group sheets contain the information from that letter. The letter was found in a file at the library at Earlham College, Richmond, Indiana, by Phyllis Rushton, another Hoskins cousin, and she sent me a copy along with her transcription, then we both worked on hard to read parts of it.”
The family info above is from her compilation citing the following sources. Note: Since Thomas Moore was raised by his step-mother Eve from the age of three he apparently never realized that she was not his mother. SMK

e-mail from Terrie O’Neil – there is some information about Charles Moore in local histories of Peekskill, NY, as he was a merchant there for some years, and petitioned to establish an Episcopal church there, and quite a bit about him in Person county, NC, as he was Postmaster there. During the Revolutionary War, he lived on his brother, Stephen Moore’s estate at West Point. However, during American occupation of West Point, he petitioned the government to allow him to move to Beverley Robinson’s house (the infamous site of Benedict Arnold’s treason) across the Hudson from West Point. He was not successful in request, & I think he moved back to Peekskill at that point.

SIX CENTURIES OF MOOR DE FALLEY by David Moore Hall, printed 1904 by O.E. Flanhart Printing Co., Richmond, VA for himself.. page 38
” During the Revolutionary War he moved from Moore’s-Folly-on-the-Hudson
to Mount Tirzah N. C. a beautiful spot in (now) Person Co. ‘where the ax had never been laid to tree’. In 1779 he took command of a regiment of North Caroina State troops which participated in the first battle of Camden, in which battle the Americans under Gen. Horatio Gates were defeated by the British under Lord Cornwallis, and he was taken prisoner and carried to Charleston, S.C. Upon his release he retired to Mount Tirzah; after the peace he sold his estate on the Hudson to the U. S. Government. It is now the site of the U. S. Military Academy, (founded 1802).” Moore, Henshaw, supra. Mrs. Sophronia Moore Horner, Genealogist.”

One thought on “Col John Moore & Frances Lambert”

  1. When I look at the portrait of Col. John Moore I see part of the face of my father as a young man and my son right now. It seem like I should be in the right family tree now, but I don’t see the connection. My earliest known Moore is Richard Moore who I believe was in Caswell Co, NC and then Wilkes Co, GA in 1800. His son Robert Moore was my 3 great grandfather. According to an article that my grandfather copied from the Atlanta Constitution from 1913, my Richard Moore is probably the brother of Col. William Moore from Caswell Co, NC (that married a Mildred Harrison). I don’t quite see a connection above. My father said that his family had some connection to the Barbadoes, and to shipping. My Moore family ended up in Athens, Clarke County, Georgia.
